I am getting to the stage where I am really fed up with hospitals. I have a problem with my hearts rhythm. At rest it bops along at 70 - 100bpm which is fine but as soon as I move it thinks I am about to start a marathon and goes anywhere between 120-170 bpm. This is making life hard because anything can cause it, cooking, eating, walking and talking and if it carries on for too long long I end up like a sweaty tomato. One hospital said it was just Sinus Tachycardia (to be fair they did a lot of tests and I have been on many medications which I could not tolerate) and live with it. I was not a happy person so I paid to see a private consultant and he was not a happy chappie at the way I had been treated and said it was either Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia or Supra-ventricular. So decided to go to another localish hopsital and now I'm confused. I had a heart monitor for 3 days and their assessment was that it was probably stress related (I was not stressed but I am now!) but then I get a letter with an appointment to see someone in the Clinical Physiology department. No idea really what a clinical physiology department is or what they do?
Apologies for the rant but this has been going on since 2017 and I am really reaching the end of my tether because I am struggling to work. I am a TA and specialise in children with behavioural problems but I really am struggling to do this.
